MK Dons will be hoping to mount a genuine promotion challenge in League One this season having fallen short in recent years and they can start as they mean to go on by picking up maximum points in their opener against Gillingham.
The Gills are one of the teams expected to struggle this term and a relegation battle could be on the cards so it’s hard to see them taking anything from their trip to stadium:mk, where the hosts are 8/11 with Betfred.
There’s significantly more optimism in the Coventry camp than there was this time last year given that Steven Pressley’s boys won’t be kicking off the new campaign ten points adrift of everyone else in League One and after dealing with that deficit well last season they should be even better this time around without that psychological burden.
Pressley has also recruited wisely over the summer and they definitely offer a bit of value at 19/10 (Winner.com) to pick up maximum points at a Bradford team that might take a while to get going.
Double on MK Dons and Coventry – 4/1 (BetVictor)
